Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle continues their win streak, grabbing 2 wins over the 3 day race weekend at the Intelligentsia Cup Prairie State Cycling Series in Waukegan, IL. The first victory of the weekend came on Day 1 when the team lined up for the Vista Health System Waukegan Criterium. Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle showed complete dominance over the field and controlled the race over the 60 minutes, never allowing any attacks from other teams to get away. On the final lap of the race the Colavita train was well positioned to easily deliver sprint specialist Erica Allar for her first win of the weekend. Saturday's race, the Northwestern Medicine Lake Bluff Criterium, was the crown jewel of the weekend for Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle as it was the 12th stop on the NCC. Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle continues to lead the individual and team classification standings. The 1.4K course in downtown Lake Bluff consisted of narrow roads with a tight final 180 degree turn before heading into a long, rising uphill drag to the finish. Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle was once again an active participant in the race, ensuring no dangerous moves got away unless it consisted of the right rider combinations that were advantageous to the team's chance of winning. A late race move saw Mary Zider explode for a prime, which allowed her to keep going up the road, while being joined by Pepper Palace's Sarah Fadar. The two riders were able to maintain a sizable lead and put a bit of pressure on the opposing team's sprinters. However, it was not enough to stick as the break of two was brought back in the closing laps of the race. Once the break was caught, it became clear the finish would come down to a field sprint. The finishing power stretch proved to be right in Allar's wheel-house as she captured her second victory of the weekend.

In the final race of the weekend Team Colavita/Fine Cooking/Stradalli Cycle went into the Tour de Crystal Lake with high confidence after winning the previous two races on the weekend. The team raced hard and smart, controlling much of the race, but as bike racing goes, things don't always go as planned. An unlucky final lap caused Allar to finish in a hard fought fourth place. Erica Allar ended the 3 day weekend leading the Prairie State Cycling Series Overall.

Bob McCarty to Ride a Stradalli Cycle During Masters World Championships in Norway
Stradalli Cycle, the high performance carbon bicycle manufacturer, is pleased to announce that professional cyclist Bob McCarty will be riding a Stradalli full carbon 29er mountain bike during the 2014 UCI MTB Masters World Championships in Norway. McCarty, who turned Pro in 2010, has been the Florida State Champion no less than four times, winning in 1997, 2011, 2012, and 2013. With over 270 race starts, he is currently at the top of his game, feeling strong and ready to race in Norway. As well as being ranked as the number one 40-49 year old in the USA, Bob also recently won the 2014 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA.
“I am in the best shape of my life. This year I will be attending the Nationals in PA., the World Cup in NY., and the World Championships in Norway,” said Robert McCarty. “I will then return to the USA to defend my Florida State Title for a 5th time.”
Bob will be riding a full carbon 29er Stradalli Mountain bike during the championships. The frames on Stradalli’s mountain bikes are made using 100% carbon fiber and have a tensile strength of 50 tons per square cm. This makes the frame strong but light, the ideal combination for mountain biking.
“Bob McCarty is a world class athlete and we are proud that he will be riding one of our bicycles,” said Thomas Steinbacher, CEO of Stradalli Cycle. “I am sure he will do well at the event and it will be great to see him race on a Stradalli.” The 2014 UCI MTB Masters World Championships will be held in Hafjell, Norway. The picturesque village and ski resort is well equipped to host the World Championships and has successfully hosted several World Cup events over the last ten years. The Hafjell Bike Park is one of the leading mountain biking facilities in Europe. The park has 14 trails, covering over 25 km.
